Meet Diocese of Lansing seminarian Daniel LaCroix. 24-year-old Daniel grew up in Ypsilanti with his parents and two sisters. His home parish is Christ the King in Ann Arbor. After going to Catholic schools from kindergarten through high school, Daniel went to Michigan Tech to pursue engineering. During his time at Michigan Tech, he became very involved at the student parish.
“There were many opportunities at the parish to make friends and grow in my faith,” explains Daniel.
“I especially enjoyed all the time I was able to spend in Adoration; being in the quiet presence of the Lord allowed me to hear his voice asking me to consider the priesthood. I enjoyed my engineering classes and internships, but I believe God may be calling me to serve him as a priest.”
Hence, after graduating from Michigan Tech in 2018, Daniel decided to enter seminary. He is now studying at entering Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit on his path to the sacred priesthood. Deo volente.
“There are times when I’m uncertain where God is leading me, but I know that he has a great plan for my life and by following it I will be able to be truly happy.”
Please keep Daniel in your prayers in the months and years to come. Saint Charles Borromeo, patron of seminarians, pray for him.
